Large Wetherspoons pub with a slightly more pubby feel than some. You’ll generally find a scoop or two here, although probabaly not as reliable in that respect as the Penderel’s Oak around the corner. And not as interesting a building as the Knights Templar a bit further down the road. The three are, however, quite handy for knocking out a good few beers in close proximity when there’s a Spoons festival on. Like many Wetherspoons they sometimes seem to have trouble with matching staff numbers to customer numbers so service can be spotty. And, in common with all Spoons, prices are good. Doesn’t really merit a special visit but worth a look if you are in the area.

A big JDW in central London. Twelve casks on offer, nothing super interesting on my visit. Staff, from bottom to top, is comprised of major bean-counters; they gave me a bit of grief with regards to my CAMRA JDW vouchers. Good location so it’s easy to pop into, and they probably usually have a least one new beer for the tickers out there.

A long Spoons is this one. Relatively narrow - but long. Nontheless spacious inside.
Service was slow even by Spoons standards (for Chrissake get more people behind the bar!).
Beers were a mixture - some in good knick, others not so much. Hard to tell if it was poor cellaring or poor brewing.
Not a terrible place but won’t be coming out of my way to go here.

Decent enough Wetherspoons just along from Holborn station. Usually has 4-6 guest real ales, plus regulars (inc cider) and the usual good value ’Spoons food menu. Can get very busy and noisy at peak hours.
